VELVET & STONE
Velvet & Stone’s brand of contemporary folk combines haunting soundscapes with catchy pop hooks and great songs; providing an original and beautiful take on a traditional genre.
Crafting their live set with performances at Cambridge Folk Festival, Celtic Connections and Larmer Tree Festival, they take their audiences on a journey through stunning melodies and soundscapes to foot-stomping folk-rock.
Led by the ethereal combination of Lara Snowdon’s vocals, and Kathryn Tremlett’s violin; Velvet & Stone’s music draws upon personal stories, melancholy tales and rugged landscapes, creating a sound that is difficult to forget.
Their music has gained plaudits from across the music press, airtime on BBC Radio 2, BBC Radio Scotland and BBC Radio Wales and is championed by BBC Introducing.
Originally from Herefordshire, via a spell in London, Emily Davies now calls Devon her home and it’s here that’s she’s quietly cementing her reputation as a singer-songwriter of the most enchanting variety.
Emily is a seasoned performer, crafting spellbinding sets that are undeniably steeped in the magic of the past, while still maintaining a refreshing air of the new. Her songs blend bittersweet folk with a melodic mix of alt-country and a genuine pop sensibility and showcase a voice that’s both breathy, big and soulful too.
Emily has played gigs and festivals both in the UK and Internationally, including Green Man, Dot to Dot, The Big Chill, OceanFest, Smoked & Uncut, Festinho, Together and Love Trails. She has also supported a wide range of artists, including Laura Marling, The Swingle Singers, Ben Taylor, Jake Morley, Heidi Talbot and William the Conqueror. Emily is a pure and supremely talented songwriter: spend a little time in her presence and drift away somewhere else entirely.
